Sometimes it takes more than creativity to come up with great designs. It takes inspiration. Focused around 9 trend themes, the stunning Book of Dreams Volume 2 is a collection of crystal artworks, moods, fashion stories and still lives showcasing harmony and contrast. Swarovski Crystals in myriad shapes, colors and effects are juxtaposed with masterpieces of nature such as flowers and feathers, while vivid sparkle is added to otherwise two-dimensional images, some of which have been taken from the rich treasures of the Swarovski Corporate Archive.
Feathers and flowers play a leading role in one of the inspiring stories told in Swarovski’s Book of Dreams Volume 2. Alongside Large Pear Fancy Stones in Light Rose and Chrysolite, Xilion Navette Fancy Stones in Tangerine and white Crystal Pearls, they entice us to embark on a magnificent voyage around the world.
Take a moment to admire the facets and intricate play of light of masterfully cut Swarovski Crystals juxtaposed with soft and delicate feathers in matching colors. Swarovski’s Large Pear Fancy Stones in Crystal Ivory Cream, Cushion Square Fancy Stones in Air Blue Opal and Xilion Beads in Light Peach and Erinite convey a poetic conversation between these contrasting materials on swatches that wouldn’t look out of place in a designer’s studio.
Chilean artist Jose Romussi gives new life to images by overlaying intricate and unique embroidered patterns. For Swarovski’s Book of Dreams Volume 2 he added yet another dimension by using needle and thread to weave crystals such as Drop Sew-on Stones in Golden Shadow, Xirius Roses in Antique Pink and Light Colorado Topaz and Navette Flat Backs in Emerald onto a beautiful selection of iconic images.
Gardening is a leitmotif that blooms throughout the book displaying a variety of the most eccentric and magical Swarovski Crystal shapes and colors. Discover the perfect symmetry of flower petals in drop-shaped crystals such as Pear Fancy Stones in Fuchsia and Crystal Buttercup, or play with the intricate cuts of Big Oval Fancy Stones in Crystal Lime and Cushion Fancy Stones in Aquamarine.
Crystals will always be the center of attention. As creative ingredients they don’t fail to amaze, especially when arranged in soothing patterns alongside nature’s inspiring symmetry of leaves and petals.
